own purdum much. we need to build a health-care system that is about -- today, it is all about aging and affluence and diabetes and health care. for the future, it must connect to the internet. mobile internet is the most important technology on the planet. and it has to serve the largest group of health-care workers in the world. and that is not doctors and nurses. they are outnumbered 10 to one by informal family caregivers. that is, you and the caring for kids, our parents, our brothers and sisters. that is a group that has to address, consumers. and number three, number one engagement transaction for consumers that they do every day, that they think and they believe and they know will keep them well is to swallow their daily pill. if you think about these massive transitions that have occurred in financial services, retail, commerce, the key is to find a transaction that consumers already engaged in that that is something they want or need to do. just like in financial services, they digitize banking by having people pay their bills and trade their stocks on line. we have digitiz

, on national tv, that this government proposal we have is just one more choice for healthcare, and you can keep your private insurance you want it, at the time someone should have pointed out, wait a minute, if people don't have any choice what happens to their healthcare, their employer will decide. 200 million people have healthcare taken through employer paid insurance? so what choice do you and i if if we're working for dupont, what happens to our choices? now you know it costs a thousand per worker to insure a worker with health care and the government fine if you don't follow it is $2,000. so it's a perfect incentive to move more people off private insurance and health and human services as sebelius said, the private healthcare insurance industry is in a death spiral. of course they're in a death spiral. that the intention. if you eliminate then it's easier to move to singing-payer system which president obama has said, this is his goal and might take five, seven, eight, ten years. >> we're going next to ken and then alex and robert and then alicia, tom, chris, and lauren fox toned. >> i

what are people concerned about that health-care costs. to a lesser extents one economic growth is stronger, maybe they're worried about issues related to the environment. these are not issues that republicans like to talk about. they're not issues that are good at talking about. this is where it emerged in the late 1990's from a time when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington. the whole point of bush was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. something like the prescription drug bill was too big and should have been paid for. the republican party will never give back to the wilderness. we have to keep our brand pure and make sure americans and no where the party of small government. americans are confident that the republican party is the party's small government. they did not vote for the republican party. it is possible that he should not nominate mitt romney next time and get a true conservative, if you look at opinion polls, barack obama won the election because people thought he cared about people like us. that i
every other president combined ahead of him. is it worse under obama stimulus, healthcare, does that have a big impact? >> i think it has. no question that his aagain da was to in a sense spend us out of recession and that didn't work and a lot of the money ended up being captured in washington august. if you look at the per capita average stimulus money washington, d.c. got nine times what the average american got outside of washington. >> sean: how does, washington, get 15% of all of the federal budget? >> that is the crisis we are in. the crisis is where you have a president or party of big government and the junior party s the party of little big government but you no party of limited government. what we have and you see this with the stimulus and the bailouts of the banks that everything s concentrated in washington now. the rest of the country has not pulled out of the recession. washington has the lowest unemployment and highest per cap income. >> sean: a real estate market that is the most robust in the country. they are doing fine. we are nonpartisan in this. this is bo
,000 a year because of smoking-related deaths. where do these costs come from in healthcare? >> somebody has to pay them obviously. we know this equation that they create more healthcare costs for the system. but as you point out, tucker, this could be considered preexisting condition. it's addictive. if you are addicted to cigarettes and you are a smoker and you have some of these health conditions. you have preexisting conditions. if you are overweight from all -- all of these are personal responsibilities. if you are overweight from overeating not a preexisting condition. >> insurance companies ought to be able to decide what they charge people. of course people voluntarily taking big health risks ought to pay more. there is no reason why people who don't watch their weight. only smokers are being single out. why is that? not because they're the most expensive. smokers save the system money because they die earlier. they take less out in social security. this is not one crackpot's opinion. that's a fact. smokers are unpopular, unpopular people wind up being penalized disproportionately. o
, the economy, healthcare, reducing the deficit, or addressing climate change. he is respected by leaders of the government, and if you add it all up, i think he is spent most of the last four years leading interagency meetings, hearing people out, listening to them, forging consensus, and making sure policies are implemented and everybody is held accountable. he always holds himself accountable first and foremost. it is no easy task, but through it all denis mcdonough does it with class, integrity and thoughtfulness for other people's point of views. he is the consummate public servant, he plays it straight and that is the kind of teamwork that i want in the white house. time and again i have relied on dennis to help in the outreach to our immigrant and faith communities. he understands that in the end our policies and programs are measured in the concrete differences that they make in the lives of fellow human beings and the values that we advance as americans. he insists on knowing for himself the real world impact of the decisions that we make, so away from the cameras without fanfare
